Our Veterinary Support Team

James Webb

Enrolled Diploma of Leadership and Management

James has been a member of the team for his whole life, cutting his teeth helping at cow calvings and with odd jobs around the clinic. James now works most days in the clinic, and is undergoing studies to become a Practice Manager. James has a fur family with attitude, being cats 'Haley' and 'Kasper' and a Staffy x pup called Tess (who is just adorable) and also finds time to help with a occasional muster on the property riding his Quarterhorse Cookie-man. James also keeps his hand in with his original hospitality trade, and also works locally at the IGA.

Sandi Edwards  

Veterinary Assistant

Sandi joined the practice in 2020 and has an avid passion for all animals large and small. Having ventured into veterinary nursing studies several years ago, Sandi is pleased to be able to use her knowledge to help our valued clients and patients. On days off, Sandi enjoys all of quiet time on her block with her cat and dog, travelling and the occasional horse ride. 

Karrie Ashby  

Certificate II in Animal Studies 

Karrie has been an integral part of the Clinic team for many years, although now this is her secondary job. Karrie originally completed a school-based traineeship through the local High School, gaining a Certificate II in Animal Studies at the end of 2014.

Karrie has 2 dogs, a Boxer named Rambo and a Border Collie named Rascal, plus two little Dachshunds called Amani (expensive tastes!) and her daughter Sharon (even more attitude!). Karrie loves to ride her first horse Jewels....when she can catch her. Karrie now has accumulated several mares for riding and/or breeding. Attendance at Nanango Ladies Panthers games, Campdrafts, Rodeos and Ute Shows occupy most of Karries' spare time.

Ryan Webb Helper

Ryan has grown up as a son of the clinic and really enjoys helping the Veterinarian (his mum) when he is here. We greatly appreciate our clients saying hi to Ryan and encouraging him. Ryan spent 2016 at TAFE learning numeracy, literacy and hospitality, and now works at Kingaroy Kitchens 3 days a week. Here he is pictured with one of the family dogs Harry (who's actually a girl dog but named after Harry Potter). 

Bruce Webb Go-fer

Bruce is quite capable of speaking for himself, and regularly does so. The PR man of the car park, Bruce holds forth, holds things, fetches things, and occasionally mows the lawn. Oh, and ferries Kath's horses around...Here Bruce is posing with Sabrina, Kathy's ASH 1st cross mare, in the clinic yards.
